A growing number of Campylobacter species other than C. jejuni and C. coli have been recognized as emerging human and animal pathogens. Although C. jejuni continues to be the leading cause of bacterial gastroenteritis in humans worldwide, advances in molecular biology and development of innovative culture methodologies have led to the detection and isolation of a range of under-recognized and nutritionally fastidious Campylobacter spp., including C. concisus, C. upsaliensis and C. ureolyticus… Expand
Antimicrobial Resistance in Campylobacter Species: Mechanisms and Genomic Epidemiology.
TLDR
This chapter discusses the taxonomy of the Campylobacter genus, the clinical and global epidemiological aspects of Campyloblacter infection, with an emphasis on C. jejuni and C. coli, and issues related to the treatment of infection and antimicrobial resistance mechanisms, and the use of next-generation sequencing for the detection and surveillance of antimicrobial resistant genes. Expand
Clinical relevance of infections with zoonotic and human oral species of Campylobacter
TLDR
An outline of the two Campylobacter groups (zoonotic and human oral), their virulence traits, and the associated illnesses including gastroenteritis is offered. Expand
CAMPYLOBACTER AS A MAJOR FOODBORNE PATHOGEN: A REVIEW OF ITS CHARACTERISTICS, PATHOGENESIS, ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE AND CONTROL
TLDR
This review discusses the pathogenesis, resistance to antimicrobial agents and public health significance of Campylobacter spp. Expand
Campylobacter: from microbiology to prevention
TLDR
Campylobacter spp is a commensal microorganism of the gastrointestinal tract of many wild animals, farm animals and companion animals and it is responsible for zoonoses and the transmission occurs via the fecal-oral route through ingestion of contaminated food and water. Expand
Campylobacter in the Food Chain.
TLDR
This chapter reviews the sources, transmission routes, the mechanisms, and strategies used by Campylobacter to persist in the whole food chain, from farm to fork, and different strategies are recommended for application along the poultry food chain to avoid the public health risk associated with this pathogen. Expand
The Host Cellular Immune Response to Infection by Campylobacter Spp. and Its Role in Disease
TLDR
The cellular immune responses across susceptible hosts to C. jejuni infection are collectively covered, along with the tissue pathology and post-infectious disorders which may develop. Expand
Tackling Campylobacter: a Review
TLDR
The costs based on the incidence, prevention and control of campylobacteriosis are high with critical impacts on surveillance programmes and hence the costs and benefits must be carefully considered. Expand
Chapter 67 – Campylobacter
TLDR
The epidemiology, genomic characteristics, mechanisms of attachment and invasion, toxin production, glycosylation, capsular polysaccharide production, biofilm formation and antibiotic resistance profile of members of the Campylobacter genus are described. Expand
Non-jejuni/coli Campylobacter Species and Related Organisms in Poultry, and Their Relevance in Human and Animal Disease
This chapter provides a survey of research on non-jejuni/coli Campylobacter spp. and related Arcobacter and Helicobacter species in poultry. The isolation and identification, clinical and veterinaryExpand
Pathogenomics of Emerging Campylobacter Species
TLDR
This review compiles the current knowledge and highlights future work toward deepening understanding about genome dynamics and the mechanisms governing the evolution of pathogenicity in emerging Campylobacter species, which is urgently needed to develop strategies to prevent or control the spread of these pathogens.

Emerging Campylobacter spp.: the Tip of the Iceberg
TLDR
A Cape Town protocol in which stool is filtered onto antibiotic-free culture media and incubated in a hydrogen-enriched, microaerobic atmosphere is a simple and cost-effective means of optimizing the recovery of all species of Campylobacter, as well as species of the related genera Arcobacter and Helicobacter from stool, blood, and other clinical samples.

TLDR
Clinical isolates of C. fetus are capable of adhering, entering, and surviving within the nonphagocytic epithelial cell line, INT 407, and investigation of the role of the host cell cytoskeleton revealed that pretreatment of host cells with cytochalasin D, colchicine, vinblastine, taxol, or dimethyl sulfoxide did not impact upon C. pregnancy. Expand
Genetic heterogeneity of the cytolethal distending toxin B (cdtB) gene locus among isolates of Campylobacter lari
TLDR
The aim of the present study is to clone, sequence and analyse the cdtB gene of C. lari isolates and compare the sequences obtained with those of other thermophilic campylobacter species, particularly seagulls of the genus Larus. Expand
Extraintestinal Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli infections: host factors and strain characteristics.
TLDR
The results suggest that either host defects or specific bacterial virulence characteristics, such as serum resistance, possibly related to length of lipopolysaccharide side chain, may be responsible for extraintestinal infections due to C. jejuni and C. coli. Expand
Illness associated with Campylobacter laridis, a newly recognized Campylobacter species
TLDR
This potential human enteric pathogen appears to be clinically, epidemiologically, and microbiologically similar to Campylobacter jejuni and may be mistaken for it if nalidixic acid susceptibility screening is not routinely performed. Expand
Detection and quantification of 14 Campylobacter species in pet dogs reveals an increase in species richness in feces of diarrheic animals
TLDR
This study demonstrates that domestic dogs can carry a wide range of Campylobacter species naturally and that there is a notable increase in species richness detectable in the diarrheic population. Expand
Prevalence of cytolethal distending toxin (cdt) genes and CDT production in Campylobacter spp. isolated from Danish broilers.
TLDR
Results confirm the common occurrence of campylobacter infection in chickens and indicate that cdt genes are commonly present in both C. jejuni and C. coli isolates from broilers, but that there are distinct differences in CDT production in these two closely related species. Expand
Detection of Campylobacter concisus and Other Campylobacter Species in Colonic Biopsies from Adults with Ulcerative Colitis
TLDR
The higher prevalence of Campylobacter genus and more specifically C. concisus and C. ureolyticus in biopsy samples from adults with UC suggests these genera of bacteria may be involved in the chronic inflammation that is characteristically seen in UC. Expand
Campylobacter upsaliensis: Waiting in the Wings
TLDR
There is now a pressing need for controlled, prospective epidemiologic studies in addition to further in-depth investigation of the pathogenesis of this enteric campylobacter to more precisely define its role in human disease. Expand
